Teacher Survey Report on Images Now Complete
Last fall and winter DIAGRAM conducted a survey of teachers to better understand their use of image descriptions in instruction. We got 60 respondents and Ting Siu has written up the results here. From the summary in the report:
“A recurring theme in responses reflected priorities for flexibility in meeting different students’ needs, and to account for the range of descriptions from those that did not need to be described, to those that required supplementary tactile representation. All of the respondents attributed the benefit of image description to enhancing students’ independent learning.”
Very many thanks to Ting for an outstanding job with this report. It will be valuable to all of us as we continue our work going forward.
